Hodinkee Skipper – interview with Louis Westphalen to get some more details

The new Skipper Limited Edition from TAG Heuer and Hodinkee – some more informations from an interview with Louis Westphalen from Hodinkee, the project man behind this Skipper.

Story short again:

It was the 21 of June 2017, the message runs through the world like a flash – in the break in the middle of a Christies auction with some nice Heuer watches that many members of the watchfamily followed.

What was it? A new Skipper as hommage of the Heuer Skipper 7754 aka „Skipperera“ was offered for 5.900 US$ from Hodinkee.com.
All the facts about the watch you can download here the original press release.

It was very surprising, especially after the words „We´ve moved away from yachting.“ from the French Headquarter in Paris they said to a friend. And we heard Mr. Biver said after the Hodinkee Skipper launch, that no further plans exists. But ok, if money can be earned, it may turn this.

There are some details that might be interesting for you we found out in a talk with Louis Westphalen, the project leader for the Limited Edition Skipper for Hodinkee.

The Skipperera returns. As a sibling: Skipper Date.

With a big bang Hodinkee brought back the Skipper to us – let´s call it the new “Skipper Date”.

From the first look – it looks cool!

But it will cost 5.900 US$ (really high price!) and it is limited to 125 pieces. A nobrainer? If you have the money – yes!
